Attraction Information

Complete your trip to Skye with a trip on the award winning and locally iconic blue and white Bella Jane: the only regular full-time service from Elgol to Loch Coruisk and the longest running boat trip in Elgol and the Isle of Skye!

It can't of course be guaranteed but you can see a great deal of wildlife: on the Bella Jane journeys you'll encounter up to 150 grey seals, a wide range of seabirds, dolphins, plus if you're really (really) lucky, the occasional whale and basking sharks! The AquaXplore tour sees Golden and Sea Eagles, Grey and Common seals, otters and very (very) occasionally Sperm Whales, Sunfish and Orcas! An amazing experience and the sightings of seals and seabirds are refreshingly frequent and stable, allowing kids to be reasonably excited!

Both vessels offer a variety of touring routes and duration so it's really easy to get exactly what you want from your jaunt. Plus both vessels are members of the wildlife operators association and is a Wise wildlife safe accredited operator so you know you're in safe hands. They also offer a “No Hype” money back guarantee, so if you don't see their minimum cap of wildlife they refund your tour! Reassuring!
